Greyhawk passenger seat is cramped - - any suggestions?

On our 2019 Greyhawk, the passenger seat has no room to tilt back and barely enough leg room. Has anyone come up with a solution?

Get a shorter person for that seat.



Actually, I have sat in it for miles when my wife is driving and I did not find it cramped but then I am not 6'+. There really is little to nothing that can be done that I can see since you are blocked to the rear by the kitchen/living floor and to the front by a floor. Short of getting up and sitting at the dinette or the sofa I can see a solution. Maybe someone has an innovative solution.

We have not come up with a solution but it has turned out to be less of a problem than we expected. But neither DW nor I is particularly tall.

Short of trading for a class A, I see no solution to the passenger seat. Instead, the passenger may have to scoot to the living area.

I'm 6'1', and it's fine for me. I was able to sleep while my wife drove. Is it spacious? No, but it works.

You can try sitting in a Uhaul box van with stock seats and see if it's enough room and comfortable enough. If so, then you can look at swapping out the passenger seat with a stock Ford seat. The seats Jayco put in these have thicker cushioning.

I was able to move my jacknife a couple of inches to the rear. It helped a lot.

On our 2018 31DS the sofa is right behind the passenger seat. The arm rest end of the sofa is removable. We leave it off and the seat will tilt back a little.

FABULOUS, RPR, that is a great solution. I'll examine the sofa to see how to take it off.

Arm rest pulls straight up has two long rods. May be stiff first time.

We moved the sofa back a few inches and it definitely helped.

I was exploring, for a time. Putting in a more compact dog house. I have seen several that might work. Salvage yard might have one from an E450 or possibly an E450 van that might fit.

Another thing I have explored but noted done is to put a swivel base under the passenger seat. It will raise the seat a couple of inches that might help. Winnebago class C's on some models have a swivel passenger seat.

My 5’7” wife has always found it cramped at the foot and I must agree. I have thought about the pivoting seat suggestion but not pulled that trigger. Will be watching for suggestions.

Removed our sofa and let chair move backwards some. Put recliners in place of sofa, and works fine for us in our 31X Greyhawk
